According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Indianapolis Colts have signed Browns free agent defensive tackle to a 1-year deal worth $4.5 million.

Last year, Bryan had signed a 1-year, $4 million deal with the Browns. He played in 16 games, logging 22 tackles, a career-high 3 sacks, and 1 pass defended. He was viewed as a decent stop gap player, but not a long-term solution.

Cleveland found that longer-term solution when they signed DT Dalvin Tomlinson away from the Minnesota Vikings; and they could still be looking to further bolster the position.
